有馬温泉 小都里 Kotori at Arima Onsen

casual Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
Kotori at Arima Onsen / Hyogo Kobe・Arima・Akashi 89


In 2014, 60 years since its establishment, Miyuki-so opened a small new ryokan under the name Kotori. Whilst reasonably priced, we have prepared a space where you may take advantage of enjoying Arima. 

The are only 6 Japanese-style and 2 Western-style rooms each with its own distinct design. It is also possible for you to reserve one whole section of the premise for a completely private experience. 

The baths come in Japanese and Western-styles allowing you to enjoy the distinct flavor of each of the four seasons. We offer ginsen, a rarity within Arima, which is known as Japan's oldest hot spring. You may also bathe in the kinsen at our sister ryokan, Miyuki-so Hanamusubi. 

We offer set meals stuffed with Japanese hospitality. 
The meals are not only delicious but also beautiful. 
You can enjoy Kobe's very own local seafood as well as Kobe beef teppanyaki. 

Travel as you were living in the rich atmosphere that is Arima. 
Come and enjoy your very own Arima retreat.

I was able to spend a simple but pleasant extraordinary time. I also liked the furnishings in the room, especially the Kashiwa woodworking chairs. The point that there was no toilet in the room is a minus

The hot spring was a flower knot in the main building and the open-air bath was good with gold bath. Dinner was also very good with a flower knot in the main building! The rooms at Kotsuri were clean and calm and good! I felt a bit slow at the front desk! → The biggest problem is that the payment is cash and the card cannot be used. Inns where cards cannot be used in this era are especially shunned by foreigners. I wonder if the manager does not know that the rich do not have cash _ ^ _ ^ I am not rich, but I will refrain from the next ^ ^ The plan to ask the outside public bath rather than having a small bath Is good! The toilet was also good! good luck. that's all!
